Call for Papers2005 MAPLD International Conference
Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center Washington, D.C.
September 7-9, 2005
The 8th annual MAPLD International Conference will present papers on programmable logic devices and technologies, digital engineering, and related fields, for military and aerospace applications. Devices, technologies, logic design, verification, flight applications, fault tolerance, reliability, radiation susceptibility, and encryption applications of programmable devices, processors, and adaptive computing systems in military and aerospace systems are topics for papers.
For 2005, MAPLD will be expanded to 3 full days and will feature expanded "Birds of a Feather" Workshop Sessions. Full-day seminars will be offered on September 6, 2005.
We are planning an exciting program with presentations by Government, industry, academia, and consultants, including talks by distinguished Invited Speakers. This conference is open to US and foreign participation and is unclassified. For related information, please see the NASA Office of Logic Design Web Site
